Gary Korlin embraces classical aesthetics and techniques in each of his oil paintings. By using a naturalistic approach learned in his 19th century French academic training at Atelier Lack, Gary Korlin captures impressions of life and depicts them in his delicately modeled figures and European countrysides. It is Gary Korlin’s ability to portray the mood and emotions of his subject matter that is most admired by collectors.
Gary Korlin has been interested in art since childhood. Shortly after entrance into a state school, he was accepted into the Minneapolis College of Art and Design where he was able to refine his artistic skills with more formal training.
Gary Korlin has spent much time traveling abroad and while temporarily living in Australia, he became aware of the 19th century Australian landscape painters that greatly influenced his painting. More recently, he has spent time living in the mountains overlooking Florence, Italy, deep in the heart of Tuscany. It is there that he established the reoccurring subject that many call the “Venetian Girl.”
Now back in the United States, Gary Korlin continues with life-sized figure work, landscapes, still lifes and portraiture. His paintings hang in collections in England, France, Austria and Italy and have been shown in San Francisco, New York, London, South Africa and France. Gary Korlin’s paintings have also been recognized by the Marquise Della Robbia, descendent of Luca Della Robbia, the 15th century Italian sculptor.
